After reading such positive reviews we were disappointed by this place. The room was clean (not the bathroom) and had a comfy bed. The bathroom however had droppings from maybe lizards all over the walls, the lights in the room were filthy and had 100s of dead ants or flies in them. I know it's not a 5* star hotel...

Stayed here for 4 nights Jan 2017 after our visit to Bangkok. Travelled from Bangkok on a minibus from Mo Chit station to Kanchanaburi station for 120 baht. We stayed in a private double room which had a private bathroom, balcony, tv and fridge which were all great! There were coffee making facilities in the hallway but, like everywhere we...

This great little guesthouse was perfect for our family of 5 when we recently traveled to Kanchanaburi. We wanted somewhere close to the railway station and this was an easy walk away. The manager was very helpful and had managed to arrange a half day Tuk Tuk taxi for us to go to Hellfire Pass - this was at late...

Been coming here for years. Wonderful hosts, very friendly people. Place has all that you need except swimming pool :) Walking distance from main street filled with restaurants and not far away from "the bridge" itself.

This was our first stop after Bangkok. As first time backpackers, Bangkok had left us a little bewildered and we were unsure what to expect from the rest of Thailand. Thai guesthouse and backpackers was absolutely perfect. The room was huge and comfortable. Good hot shower with a little lizard in the bathroom. After the overwhelming smells and sounds of...

Ignore the Google map reference as this place is in a quiet alley clearly sign posted, opposite Nuts restaurant, at the southern end of the backpacker strip. Large clean room with comfortable bed. Excellent AC and wifi. Bathroom clean but our shower head/unit is on its last legs. No problem though. Friendly and helpful hosts. Bikes available for hire around...

I really like this guest house, there are really only a few minor things that could be changed. The rooms are incredibly clean, the bed comfortable and clean with not a single bug or mozzie in the room on any of the three nights we stayed. It's in an ideal location with a 7/11 just across the road. There's a...

You must remember this is a backpackers hotel so your own bathroom essentials have to be taken. The rooms were spacious and well appointed and really clean. The bathroom was good. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the outdoor setting was quaint. It was well located and off the main street but close to all amenities. Great fun....
